When you get a backpack form a company with a name like Hyperlite, you expect that much—and you won’t be disappointed. I was lucky enough to test the Hyperlite Mountain Gear 2400 Ice Pack, weighing only 2.13 lb, 34.1 oz
Although I am not an ice climber, I got plenty of use out of it for many different activities and I was not disappointed. Constructed with Dyneema fabric, this stuff is bomber, extra light, and fully waterproof.
Hyperlite Mountain Gear 2400 Ice Pack Review
Along with functionality in any sort of weather conditions, there are also plenty of accessories on the Hyperlite Mountain Gear 2400 Ice Pack. With built-in bungees on the back, an inside pocket for valuables, ice ax loops, and your choice of gear loops or hip pockets, there are plenty of options for carrying gear.
Initially, I was skeptical about only having one main pocket, but the number of straps and loops to put gear on make that problem a non-factor.
Do note: there are no convenient straps for skis or snowboards, they do offer a custom service to get ski straps on the bag for $100
The amazing part about the Hyperlite Mountain Gear 2400 Ice Pack is how versatile it is. I was able to bring it on hut trips, surf camping, and casual weekend trips up to the mountain. It is simple, functional, impenetrable, and….hyper light.
The Hyperlite Mountain Gear 2400 Ice Pack ($500) is functional, its especially comfortable, and you can even remove the interior metal frame for your preference. This pack gets a 5/5 for me, and I admittedly haven’t gotten to use it to its’ full potential—but I can’t wait.
